Didn't take you long to start this one ;)
I know Jonathan Jesse is already working up some Kubuntu Documentation specs
for Feisty. We have the "Switching Guides", which if done correctly can
probably be a "HIT" with the potential switchers out there. What I would like
to see is:
* Time to start fresh on the documentaion, as adding on top of Breezy, Dapper,
and Edgy is going to become monotenous to the readers. A lot of work granted,
but definitely something we should look at. I have noticed that a lot of the
information in the Desktop Guides, About and Release Notes, pretty much say
the same thing over the last 3 releases, except we change &distro-rev;
* I would like to see Edubuntu work out of our repo, have an About Edubuntu
doc, Release Notes Doc, and of course the Handbook, which is their version of
the Desktop Guide in a way. A ton of work is needed here, and that is why I
have kind of started working over there a little bit, to bring relief to
those who have been struggeling, as I would hate to see them get burnt out.
* More meetings among the team
* See if we can help along the moin2docbook development
* Try spreading the responsibilities a little bit, or maybe pass on some
instructions or what not in case someone, mdke really, isn't around towards
a "freeze". I am glad we have mdke w/o a doubt, as the work you do man is
crazy. I don't want to see you getting burnt out either doing all that you
do. I know LaserJock and myself kind of flipped a lid during your vacation
trying to figure out some stuff.
* Revitalize the Ubuntu Style Guide
* A possible Doc Team portal that will have tools, documentation, procedures,
and what not that we need in order to do our jobs correctly. I believe the
infrastructure is there (doc.ubuntu.com or even the wiki, just clean them
That's all I have right now, it is close to 3:30am and I am dead tired.
